To do any form of analysis in the enterprise you need specific knowledge about the domain being analyzed, raw data is not enough. Users want to know where each data element originates and have the assurance they fully understanding it's meaning. In order to have full confidence, they also need immediate access to the rules and policies used to calculate values and define relationships. Transparency is achieved when data and systems are described by domains and include descriptions from the perspective of all participants within those domains but transparency is only half the battle. When the semantics are completed, mapped to their appropriate data sources and these same models are machine readable, an Enterprise Information Web (EIW) evolves to support Emergent Analytics(TM), agile analytics across the enterprise.

Michael Lang, CEO and Founder, Revelytix, Inc., will detail how the W3C Semantic Web Standards are being applied to solve these highly complex problems, without having to migrate databases or stage information. For those just getting exposed to semantics, the talk opens with an explanation of how the W3C's Semantic Web Standards evolved from DARPA to become the only set of open standards that can be uniformly applied today to Enterprise Information Management. The talk will focus on the problem set of two existing customer engagements, required skill sets to support Revelytix collaborative methodologies for developing a unified information management and integration solution. Emergent Analytics (TM), the agility to analyze your business at the enterprise level.
